Figures of Speech Song - Tune of Supercalafragilisticexpialidocious
This video is a song about the various types of speech, including definitions and examples. The lyrics are printed on the screen while the music plays. However, nobody is actually singing the song on the video. You will need to determine how the lyrics fit into the tune of the song. Some of the lyrics include "Personification, metaphor, hyperbole, simile. Figures of speech when you want to see your writing come alive, sing along with me! When you treat an object like a human being it's c
Learn Theorems Related to Tangents and Circles
Students learn the following theorems related to tangents. If a
line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the
radius at the point of tangency. If a line is perpendicular to a radius
at its outer endpoint, then the line is tangent to the circle. If two
tangent segments are drawn to a circle from an external point, then the tangent segments are congruent. Students are then asked to use these theorems to find missing segment lengths and missing angle mea

Magic School Bus is Out of This World
Join Ms. Frizzle and the class as they rocket into space and follow an astroids path. In the process, the kids see comets, meteors, and other space objects. This Magic School Bus video covers the following two concepts: (1) Asteroids, comets, and smaller space objects move in predictable paths, called orbits, around the sun. and (2) Sometimes an object's orbit and the Earth's orbit cross. Most objects burn up in the Earth's atmosphere, but sometimes they crash to the ground. Run time 22 minu

How the Hubble Space Telescope Works
A common misconception about telescopes is that their main purpose is to
magnify objects. This is false: in fact what a telescope does is
capture more light than is possible by the naked eye. The Hubble Space
Telescope is one of the world’s most important telescopes. Situated in
orbit around Earth, but outside of its atmosphere, the Hubble gets a
clearer view of the Universe and what lies within than any ground-based
The Apple and the Moon
The first authentic steps toward outer space. Seeking an explanation for Kepler's laws, Newton discovered that gravity described the force between any two particles in the universe. From an English orchard to Cape Canaveral and beyond, Newton's universal law of gravity reveals why an apple but not the moon falls to the Earth.
What is Gravity?
This was a Featured Video on YouTube. Although invisible, gravity is a complex force of nature that has an immeasurable impact on our everyday lives. Gravity and its variation in space are fundamental for every dynamic process on Earth's surface and in its interior. Improving our knowledge of how gravity affects these processes has practical benefits in today's changing world.
Meet the Supermassive Black Hole Experts Meet the experts of possibly the scariest phenomenon in the universe - super massive black holes. Described as gravity gone mad, whole solar systems can be sucked into these terrifying masses. Supermassive black holes are a million to a billion times the massive of a typical black hole. They could fill a solar system. At the heart of a supermassive black hole is one of the most mysterious things to physics, it is a singularity, wh

Mysteries of Deep Space: Black Holes
Explores the revolution in astronomy launched by the Hubble Space Telescope. This video discusses the Super Nova, its size, mass, and gravity. Discusses neutron stars size and mass, when the were discovered. The Hubbell Telescope is discussed and how it is used to help scientists. The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory is also discussed. Video is of good quality and is appropriate for students of middle elementary school, middle school and high school.

West Virginia State Flag and State Song
The flag has a deep blue field contains the seal of Virginia with the Latin motto "Sic Semper Tyrannis" - "Thus Always to Tyrants". Adopted in 1776.

King Charles I - Lecture
This video is the monologue/ lecture by historian George S. Stuart as part of an exhibit of his Historical figures. He begins by describing Charles I physical appearance and he talks about his family. He narrates the way in which the king defended himself at court but he does not enumerate the reasons in detail. There is a description of the day of the execution. He illustrates the drama of the scene very clearly.
Little Bear-I'm Going to the Moon
Little Bear makes himself a space helmet so that he can fly to the moon. He jumps to the moon from a tree and comes to a house much like his own. Mother Bear fools him by telling him that her own Little Bear has gone to the moon.
States of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas
In this program matter is discussed as anything that has mass or takes up space. Three of the recognized five states of Matter are solid, liquid and gas. (The other two are plasma and Bose-Einstein concentrates) As different forces are applied to matter, like heat, matter can change from one form to another: solid to liquid, liquid to gas, or solid to gas. Show Me Science: States of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas describes what happens to matter at boiling, melting, freezing, and dew points. The
